WMU Football Unveils New Uniforms
First-year Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck is serious about that “Row the Boat” team mantra — so much so that it’s a noticeable part of the Broncos’ new uniforms, which were unveiled Thursday.
All three of WMU’s new helmets — which come in all-matte black, matte brown with a white facemask and white with a brown facemask — have corresponding mini-stickers of crossed oars that will be given out for individual achievements.
By themselves, the helmets — with a Bronco rendering on the left side and the player’s uniform number on the right (a noticeable helmet design trend this offseason) — are pretty nice. As are the jerseys and the pants, with our particular favorite being the all-back look with gold lettering.
We could do without the white facemasks and white-and-brown uniforms, but give these a high grade because of how sweet the all-blacks look. Grade: B+
